  • The development of medical knowledge in nephrology by integrating clinical concepts and practical training with the clinical and basic sciences through regular didactic sessions
  • The facilitation of practice-based learning and improvement through a program of organized performance improvement activities and a training environment emphasizing life-long learning
  • Promotion of interpersonal and communication skills and professionalism of the highest order through a training curriculum emphasizing the highest quality of patient care that is tightly integrated with the training of medical students and residents, resulting in effective information exchange and teaming with patients, their patients' families and professional associates, all while demonstrating a commitment to professionalism and an adherence to ethical principles
  • Teaching and utilization of a systems-based practice approach to health care by developing an awareness of and responsiveness to the larger context and system of health care and growth as a system physician-leader
